Chennai, May 21 (IANS) BharatMatrimony, one of India’s leading matrimony portals, has tied up with Metropolis Health Service India Pvt Ltd to provide premarital health check ups to the matrimonial site’s clients. The web portal members can avail the pre-marital health check up at special prices, and also upload the certificate as part of their profile. “This helps in promoting complete transparency in the process of matchmaking,” Murugavel Janakiraman, founder and CEO of BharatMatrimony, said Wednesday.

G.S.K Velu, Metropolis Health Services managing director, said: “There is an alarming increase of incidence in infectious diseases being reported in the country and there is increased risk of transmission of disease in most traditional marriages since both partners are relative strangers to each other”.

The pre-marital health check can play an important role in diagnosing hereditary disorders like Thalassemia, sickle cell Anaemia and chronic infectious diseases like HBV, HCV and HIV, he explained.
